Conan O’Brien’s ‘Clueless Gamer’ Segment Gets ‘Game Of Thrones’ Help From Peter Dinklage & Lena Headey

Conan O’Brien's 'Clueless Gamer' Segment Gets 'Game Of Thrones' Help From Peter Dinklage & Lena Headey

Conan O’Brien’s TBS late night show has a recurring segment called “Clueless Gamer” where O’Brien and guests play a video game and crack wise throughout the proceedings. In this latest installment, O’Brien is joined by “Game of Thrones” stars Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey, who play Tyrion and Cersei Lannister on the series, to play multiplayer first-person shooter game “Overwatch.” Though Conan, Dinklage, nor Headey had any experience playing the game, they all powered through anyway and fought valiantly on the battlefield. At one point, Dinklage played as a “giant gorilla with a laser cannon” and defeated Headey twice, but then Headey retaliated by killing Dinklage. At one point, Conan, Dinklage, and Headey play a round in which “all the women [characters] with shiny butts” fight each other. Watch the video above.
